THE Macmerry community turned out in force for the village's gala day on Saturday.

Although there was no gala queen or court this year, organisers still ensured a gala day was able to take place, the first since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A fun day was enjoyed in the park, before later in the day a fancy dress parade made its way through the village.

Here are a selection of photos from the day. We will also publish some in this week's Courier, out on Thursday.
